I seem to have waves of gains. For two or three weeks I'll make consistent gains and then all of a sudden, a mini-plateau that usually lasts 10 days. I havent changed my programming during these plateaus.. Weights that just felt manageable now feel 110% of 1RM. Then, all of a sudden, the gains come back and last another two or three weeks.
This has happened several times with most of my lifts - bench press, squat, and overhead press.
In the 'micro' way of looking at things, this bewilders me, yet in the 'macro' view Im still satisfied with the gains I do make.
Any diagnosis here? Advice?
